These were listed and sold on Ebay recently. I have never seen any of these listed before. Anyone know anything about these?

Yes... They are picture overlays for the corresponding Emerson records. The overlays have a slot in them to play the record underneath, while the pictures stay stationary for viewing, instead of spinning around like other picture disks... These are hard to find, especially in this condition. Do you know what they sold for?

Yes, they sold for $75.00 each. I had saved them to my watch list because I thought they were really unusual and I have never seen them listed before. Thanks for the information.

Hi phonogal,

Can you post a link to the eBay listing please? I can't find it in completed listings.

Thanks,
Bob

Wow. Those are really neat. I need to stop coming to this forum. You guys are enablers. My talking machine and accessary "must haves" list keeps on growing larger and larger.

That's quite something! Never seen anything like it... even in a later era. Did anyone else make something like this in the 40s/50s golden era of kiddie records?
